THE BOB

How to wear it now:
Make sure your ends reach your shoulders (if your hair is curly, they should fall just past your shoulders to compensate for shrinkage). Then lightly razor the tips so that they flip a bit, says Rodney Groves, a stylist for Kerastase at Vartali Salon in New York (he created the looks here). What you don't want: the blunt-cut, overly "round" bob favored by your local weatherwoman.

How to style:
Run mousse through damp hair, then blow-dry with a paddle brush. Finish with smoothing cream.

LONG AND LAYERED

How to wear it now:
The layers should be choppy and irregular and should start no higher than the jaw, says Rodney Groves.

How to style:
Douse damp hair with volumizer; air-dry, then wrap inch-wide sections around a large curling iron to create loose spirals (start curls several inches from the root). Finger-fluff to finish.

Kerastase Resistance Expanseur Extra-Corps

THE PIXIE

How to wear it now:
The hair should be longer on top, then thinned out with choppy layers on the sides and bottom to keep the 'do from becoming too bushy (particularly if your hair is thick or curly), says Groves.

How to style:
Comb mousse through damp hair, then rough-dry with your hands and a blow-dryer. Finish by running a flatiron over just the ends to accentuate their piecey-ness.

Clairol Herbal Essences Citrus Lift Xtrahold Mousse
